The opening of the exhibition in 69 (www.sessantanove.es) was Saturday 8 November at 12pm, with the screening of the video “Shattering the Glass Ceiling”  in collaboration with the collective “Ideadestroyingmuros” and followed by a public performance. The body pieces were used in a street procession starting from the venue 69 in which all women were invited to participate as heroines.

In this exhibition, Anna Maria Staiano presented her collection “Planet Woman: Jewels for Heroines” which highlights gender discrimination in the public and private sphere.
Her work is based on the design of body extensions, which explore gender, transformation, interaction and play. These performatic pieces can be used to cause unexpected changes in our sensorial experience and our symbolic imaginary.

Exhibition “CorpoREacción” at Melting Point 2014

poster CorporeaccionThe solo exhibition “CorpoREacción” was part of the international contemporary jewellery event Melting Point València. Joieria Contemporània 2014.

“CorpoREacción” is an ironic and surreal interpretation of the body and consists of recent work: outrageous body extensions, un/wearables, and playful performative pieces with a political message which aim to achieve changes in our sensory experience and challenge the gender stereotypes. The pieces embrace and juxtapose opposing elements such as domesticity and sexual unruliness.

The exhibition is divided into various sections: Experiments in Flexible Structures; Remembrance and Remains; Body Politics; Breast Matters; Hairy Pieces; Performance.

Most of the pieces are “ready-made assisted,” made out of everyday household objects, sponges and hair rollers combined with textiles, dolls eyes and human hair.

The exhibition included photographs by Toni Cordero in collaboration with the artists Jennifer Picken and Graham Bell Tornado.

Some of the pieces were only presented in photographic format and others were only to be seen in performance, since it didn´t make sense to display them without the body and /or the action that accompanies them. For this reason the exhibition was complemented by two special events:

– On the 10th of May the missing pieces of the collection were shown in action in the “Performance: CorpoREactive Show”. The show was full of surprises and counted with the special participation of MC Msieur Demodé (Doctor in Pataphysics), Jennifer Picken (Face of the Year of CorpoREacción), Graham Bell Tornado (B-Side of C.RE.A/Shaman Travestí), Eva Pez (Aphrodite Shibarita) and Rampova Kabaret (Performer Anar-Queer).
